Cuban doctor whistleblower reports death of an infant caused by medical negligence

From our Bureau of Top-Notch Socialist Free Healthcare

Ay! This is only one of thousands of such stories. The only difference here is that a doctor was so appalled by the mishandling of this infant’s care that he felt compelled to report it on social media.

Meanwwhile, as infants die due to medical negligence, and Cubans have to scrounge and beg for the medications they need in order to survive, Castro, Inc. boasts of exporting medications to other countries.

The doctor-whistleblower, Alexander Jesús Figueredo, was brave enough to say this on social media: “I call on the International Red Cross to take note of this, and I myself will deliver the complaints to the NGOs responsible for ensuring the health of children worldwide. In Cuba they are letting children die, I have the proof and the people know it”

Vamos bien. Requetebien. Lord have mercy. This story has pierced me to the core and made me weep out loud.

The girl died at the pediatric hospital of Santa Clara. My condolences to the family. And God is witness of the harm that our cruel murderous dictatorship is inflicting on the people of Cuba. I’m a victim, and we will all be victims. God be with you, little angel….

  1. The “revolution” is and always has been a lying fraud. It’s never cared about “the people” except as tools. And no, the parents of the dead infant have no recourse in practical terms. The system is never guilty.
